SENGinar - Parenting During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Curiosity, Creativity, and Concerns

Parenting during these unprecedented times brings unprecedented challenges. In this session, Dr. Joanne Foster offers practical strategies relating to the following:

1) how to respond to children’s curiosity and help them understand and deal with what’s happening around them; and

2) how to spark creativity at home so children will be excited, and build upon their strengths, interests, resourcefulness, and adaptability.

Dr. Foster will also address parents’ concerns about fortifying children’s learning experiences and supporting their well-being during this exceptionally difficult time.

Tuesday, April 2nd

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT





The goal of the United Independent School District Gifted/Talented (GT) Program is to enable GT students to progress beyond the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) of the regular school curriculum by providing in-depth learning experiences that explore complex subjects and issues.

Gifted/Talented Program Overview

As a result of participation in the GT Program, students are expected to:

  • Grow in understanding of universal themes, issues, or problems through subject related activities planned to develop these understandings.
  • Develop thinking skills (critical, creative, problem-solving, and logical) that will enable them to take their rightful place in solving social, ecological, and technical problems of the future.
  • Develop independence in acquisition of knowledge and in learning to apply information in new situations and use it to develop new products.
  • Develop an understanding of their giftedness and an appreciation for others through studies of individual differences and through interaction with both intellectual and social peers.

Kinder – Pre-screening begins in September with services being rendered in March to identified students

Elementary – K-5th grade GT students may receive services at their home campus through classroom instruction and  GT project-based opportunities with trained GT teachers.
